It was hard work, and it took way too long, but we did it: this week I helped pass the USMCA out of the Senate, sending the critical trade deal to President Trump’s desk and final ratification.

I’ve heard time and again from Iowa’s farmers, manufacturers, and business owners about the need for the USMCA. And each time, for more than a year, I would convey that message loud and clear to my colleagues in the House. Finally the Senate was given our chance to take swift action and passed this agreement with overwhelmingly bipartisan support.

I joined Bloomberg TV to discuss the positive impacts of the USMCA for folks in Iowa and across the country.
